Huge Iberian walls and well conserved structures around 25 hundred years old...a cultural visit even young children will enjoy. The museum was fine; it could have shown more things, but was nice and neatly presented. All in a wonderful environment. If you have the chance...More

This is a remarkable site, and well worth a visit. The site is an Iberian Iron Age town, where you can walk around and see the old buildings and town streets. The site is also one of the five main branches of the Archaeology Museums...More

We had already visited several Oppida (Iron Age Hill Forts) such as Ambrussum and Enserune in France, so it was nice to find such a well preserved site on the Costa Brava. There isn't much to see inside, just the usual cisterns and storage pits,...More

Good museum in a fantastic location. The Iberian remnants are the real reason for visiting. The huge defensive walls are particularly impressive, compared with some sites a lot remains and it's not difficult to envisage how the town functioned. We visited in late October and...More

Impressive ruins of an ancient Iberian civilisation. Well explained in English with a free audio guide. New for this year is a 3D short film recreating the city as it appeared just before it fell to the Romans.
